Re: The Countdown to 600

But the incredibly stupid travel schedule falls on MLB and Manfred. Who cares where they play? Stop traveling from city to city. Stop all players from sitting together in the dugout. Mandate masks if that helps. Have a compliance officer travel with each team if needed and keep track of EVERYONE. T...

Re: The Countdown to 600

I'm not going to take a side in the debate yet as to how lucky this year's ME winner will be. It's too hard to predict at this time. IF everybody knew a month ago all these games were going to be "postponed" this first week from a COVID perspective, no one would have signed up for this reboot seaso...

Re: The Countdown to 600

As the frustrations with this season pile up we now have a new countdown to follow and track. The countdown to 600 games played to constitute a complete season should they abandon the season prematurely. So far we're at 92 Joe - Will you be updating the countdown clock? I could either look at that ...

Hi KJ - You must be just making a general observation about "quitters" as I don't see anyone quitting here. What I do see is a total MLB shit show. Greg's game is still fantastic and the best on the planet; however COVID and MLBs handling of it is turning this all into one big dart throw or a push o...

Craig Mish of SportsGrid hears that it's two Cardinals players that have tested positive, while Joel Sherman of the New York Post adds that the Cardinals are self-isolating at their hotel and not going to the park.

Game should count, its part of MLB season. There is strategy especially in a short season to plan your last FAAB around possible tiebreaker games and possible pitchers who might pitch them.

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ABOUT START OF SEASON

#MLBPA has informed #MLB players will report on July 1st for July 24 Opening Day. 60 Game season in 66 days. They are both still working on finalizing safety and health protocols which quite frankly will be something both parties will continue to improve on going forward.
